Launcher with Notification Center Widget has just been released in the App Store! Launcher with Notification Center Widget was originally released back in September 2014 but was quickly pulled by Apple from the App Store. This was due to the app’s awesome ability to launch other apps right from your Today Screen. But Apple has had a change of heart and Launcher is now back! Use it to put your favorite apps right in your lock screen. Even create shortcuts to websites or quick links to call or text your friends. We’re so happy Launcher is back! If you didn’t get it the first time, grab it now and see what you’ve been missing.

Launcher is the original app launching widget -- and still the best!
Now with version 3, Launcher has far and away the most powerful widgets on the App Store. When you install it, you get up to 6 widgets (with in-app purchase) which can be added to Notification Center on your iPhone or iPad so that they're just one swipe away!

Why worry about what apps to put in your dock or your home screen when you can put dozens of app, web, music and contact launchers in your Launcher widgets? Unlike the dock or home screen, Notification Center can always be accessed with one swipe even if you're in an app, an app folder or even the lock screen.
With just one tap in the Notification Center you can:
- Call, message, email, and facetime the people you contact the most.
- Get directions home or search for nearby restaurants, coffee shops, or whatever you're looking for at your current location.
- Quickly access your favorite web sites.
- Perform actions within a number of apps. Run Workflows, load a specific page on Facebook, fire off a canned email or message, tweet, and more.

NOTE: If you don't see an app in your Installed Launchable list when adding a new app launcher, try searching for it instead. This is a new restriction placed on the app by App Review.
* NOTE: Launcher cannot support launching of every app you have installed. Only certain apps that can be launched by third party apps are supported.
